Obituary of Stuart Newman McGie
July 24, 1944 - January 3, 2021
After a long battle with multiple diseases, made lonely in the end by Covid, Stuart died peacefully with his daughter Debbie by his side, singing his favourite hymn, Amazing Grace.
Stuart was predeceased by his parents Newman and Isobel McGie (Astilles), sister Eileen Downey, and daughter Donna Chamberlain (Rick).
Stuart leaves behind his wife Karen (Little), and six children: Ginnywinks Buell (Peter), Stuart William (Sheryl), Al Tychynski, Karen Ann Garner (Scott), Tammy Croft (Mitch) and Debbie Migay (Andrew). Stuart will be remembered by many grandchildren whom he loved dearly, and great grandchildren who he was just getting to know, and brother-in-law Donnie Little, as well as nieces and nephews and a few very special friends.
Stuart’s life wasn’t always easy, but he led a very adventurous one! He had fulfilled all of his goals and dreams. Stuart served as a police officer, he travelled the world, and he loved Australia the best (which was where he served in the army). As a young teen, Stuart was a strong swimmer and trained towards the Olympics. He worked hard from a young age, learning to build homes by his father’s side, and he liked to keep his hands busy. He loved his Harley Davidson, but one of the highlights of his life was flying helicopters.
It may not always have been expressed, but nothing was more important to Stuart than his family. Stuart saw himself as the protector of his family and they were always close to his heart. He will always be loved, and we will miss him. In accordance with Stuart’s wishes, cremation has taken place. Arrangements are entrusted with Essentials Cremation and Burial Services. Memorial donations may be given to the Kristen French Child Advocacy Centre Niagara or to South Niagara Life Ministries. Online condolences may be shared on Stuart’s tribute page found at EssentialsNiagara.com
There are no upcoming public services scheduled or the service has occurred in the past.
